Loss of Life

If a person or entity makes an error that results in loss of life, either through negligence, product liability, or malice, that death will be considered wrongful death. If you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death incident, do not suffer that grief alone. Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan"‹ attorneys can step in and represent you in your case against the person or entity responsible for the loss of your loved one. You are entitled to economic, non-economic, and sometimes even punitive damages. Do not face this difficult time alone. Losing someone you love is difficult enough. Allow us to work on your behalf to ensure that you and your surviving loved ones receive some financial relief and compensation.

Proving Negligence

When it comes to proving wrongful death, three things must be present: breach of duty, cause, and damages. Breach of duty refers to proof that the defendant had a duty to the deceased that was not met. For example, if someone ignores the speed a pedestrian walkway and runs over a pedestrian in their car, they have breached their duty as a driver. Cause refers to a direct connection between the breach of duty and death. For example, if the deceased died of their injuries following an accident in which someone failed to fulfill their duty, there is a clear connection between the breach of duty and death. Damages refer to proof that this wrongful death led to financial and emotional hardships.


Taking on Insurance Companies

Like in most personal injury cases, insurance companies are incentivized to offer surviving family members a lower settlement than they may be entitled to. During this time of personal crisis, it is understandable to want to accept a settlement and be done with the business transactions following the loss of someone you love, but at Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan, we urge you not to. Instead, let our wrongful death attorneys handle the heavy lifting to ensure that once the dust has settled and the pain eased, that you will be financially set.


Calculating a Fair Settlement

When it comes to providing damages in the event of wrongful death, there are three main types: economic, non-economic, and punitive. Economic damages refer to compensation from loss of future earnings from the deceased, pre-death medical costs, and funeral service costs. Non-economic damages refer to the compensation for the pain and suffering following the loss of a loved one. Punitive damages can be awarded if excessive negligence led to wrongful death. They are meant to put a financial strain on the responsible party.

What Our Clients Say!

The entire staff was outstanding, professional and courteous. Especially Art and Angie. They were always available to answer my questions and requests. And if they were not available I heard back from them promptly. Top notch firm that I highly recommend!

Steven Frank
Los Angeles, CA

When I fell at a fast food restaurant due to the wet floor from the recent rain, 3 other law firms passed up on my case.  Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan took on my case and ended up settling my case for $750,000 and I was happy to have gotten the surgery I desperately needed.  This firm is truly a life saver.  Thank you.

Takeo Ibbett
Costa Mesa, CA

It was truly a pleasure to work with this firm. I have to say this is one of the friendliest attorney’s offices. Very professional but also very warm and compassionate. My case manager Karina always available to answer my calls when I had questions or concerns. I would highly recommend this law firm.

Pierre Boyd
Brea, CA

I had to change attorneys when I got a second opinion from this law firm.  I am glad I did because the other law firm wasn’t helping me or communicating with me.  I dealt with Angela throughout my process and she was very helpful.  The money I got at the end was very good.

Ailpean Cowp
San Clemente, CA

I was dealing with Adriana and Naira from The Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan, they both are very fast, and will deliver to you everything you ask them immediately.  This firm is very responsive and professional, which is very important. The attorneys always get in touch with you regarding the case. My case was in litigation, the attorney personally would call me and ask how I am feeling. Not to mention that they help me to make the doctor's appointments, so I did not have to deal with that. They are on top of their work, they know what they are doing. When my case was settled, I was so happy with the settlement amount.

Harry Lamb
Manhattan Beach, CA

I had a slip and fall injury at a grocery store back in August of last year. Very recently I got a call saying that my case was settled. Thank you Law Offices of Andrew Zeytuntsyan! Working with this office was the first correct step I took for handling my injury case. The level of professionalism is unmatched. I have had less than satisfactory experiences with other injury lawyers before, but this office and all its employees really made it feel like I mattered to them. Whenever I had a question or a concern regarding the case, they were always on top of everything and made sure I got the answers I needed. Highly recommend working with them!

Walter Morse
Anaheim, CA

I trusted Andrew's office with my car accident case, and I'm very glad I did. Avo Nalbandyan was the attorney working on my case and was able to recover more than I thought would be possible. He was easy to reach and answered all my questions to my satisfaction.  The staff here are very kind, responsive and knowledgeable.

Amor Klemenz

I love this love firm; I was referred to them by a family friend. They were willing to take my case and worked with me every step of the way to make sure I was able to get the best care/ treatment and maximum payout. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Abrahem Ewens
Paramount, CA

I was referred to this law office by a friend that used them a couple years back and had a good result. I was taken care of and all my questions were always answered. The attorney I was helped by was Anthony C and he was great at keeping me informed and explaining how the insurance companies worked. My car was fixed and my injuries were treated.  Thank you, guys.
